This year, we got to see the biggest eSport competition in Overwatch history with the inaugural season of the Overwatch League. Still, there are even more tournaments coming this year with the Overwatch World Cup on the horizon.

Soon we will see the 24 qualified teams compete for national pride with the finals culminating at Blizzcon. A team is already the first favorite to take it all, South Korea.

Korea has already won the previous two World Cups, defeating them Russia 4-0 in the 2016 final before the defeat Canada 4-1 the following year. If they raise the trophy again, they’ll do it in style with these flamboyant uniforms.

The South Korea team jerseys at the 2018 Overwatch World Cup have been revealed online

The jerseys feature the colors of the South Korean flag with minimalist and elegant stripes. A single red and blue stripe is found on the right side of the shirts while the rest of the shirt is white.

However, the stripes stretch across the back in a diagonal wave to add an extra layer of color and flavor.

Not only is Korea already two-time champion, its roster is filled with famous players who have dominated the Overwatch League.

In the role of DPS are the New York couple Excelsior Jong-ryeol ‘Saebyeolbe’ Park and Hae-seong ‘Libero’ Kim, as well as Byung-sun ‘Fleta’ Kim of the Seoul dynasty and Jan-hyeok ‘Carpe’ Lee of Philadelphia, grand finalist of OWL Merger.

Meanwhile, in the tank position, South Korea also has a fantastic group of players to choose from. Chan-hyung ‘Fissure’ Baek turned the LA Gladiators season upside down while his LA rival Valiant Pan-seung ‘Fate’ Koo also looked strong. The New York Excelsior has yet another player in Tae-hong “MekO” Kim while Jun-ho “Fury” Kim represents the London Spitfire.

NYX dominance continues in the supporting role with both Yeon-joon ‘Ark’ Hong and Tae-sung ‘Anamo’ Jung. Rounding out the squad is Valiant’s Yeong-seo ‘Kariv’ Park and Dynasty’s fearsome support, Sung-hyeon ‘Jjonak’ Bang.

Of the 12 members, half of them are NYX players, which is not surprising considering how dominant they have been during the season, even if they didn’t make it to the Grand Final. On the other hand, it is surprising that OWL Spitfire champions only have one rep, although this could be due to their poor form during Phase 4.
